But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31 KJV
I remember a song from my childhood youth group based on Isaiah 40:31, Teach Me, Lord. It was one of the songs that I sang to Mom. It was one of her favorite scriptures. I watched her live out this scripture. She was a doer, but in living life, she learned to wait on the Lord. She had tremendous faith in his provision for everything including strength for the weary. She was a prayer warrior and knowing she was praying for me was a great encouragement because I knew her prayers were accompanied by an unrelenting faith that God would answer in his time.
I witnessed her faith in praying for healing, salvation, safety and many other things on behalf of her children as well as others. She had an expectation that God would hear and that he would provide. Even as the Alzheimers ravaged her, she still clung to her faith. She would sometimes tell me she wanted to see Jesus and now she has.
She prayed many prayers and even though she is now in heaven, I believe that her prayers are still relevant. God remembers her prayers and he knows which ones still need to be answered and they will be in his time.
My prayer for you is that you will wait upon the Lord for renewed strength; that he will raise you on Eagles wings and that you won’t become weary in doing life but trust in his timing for all things.
Grace and Strength for the journey,
PS – I hope you don’t mind that I combined Saturday and Sunday this week. I am a little weary this weekend and need some extra rest. Looking forward to the day when I can walk and not faint.
Come back Monday for more of the journey? Just a reminder that I usually post later in the day. Clicking on the ladybug graphic will take you to the first page in this series with links to the daily posts. Thanks for reading!
